Sale Shows Mini-Art Exhibition
Artist Bases Work on Spanish Songs
Wutercolor, ink, charcoal and acry-
lics arc some of the media used to create
a mini-art exhibition now showing in the
Spanish department office in the Lan-
guage Building for the month of April.
The collection of 12 pieces is by Teel
Sale, a Denton art graduate student. The
majority are based on Spanish poems
Ms. Sale said she began working with
the poems and songs as a result of a con-
versational Spanish class she was taking.
The 55 mile-per-hour speed limit
and defensive driving are reasons cited
for a 30 per cent decrease in traffic fa-
talities in Texas, according to a recent
Department of Public Safety report.
The report, published March 30, said
495 persons died on Texas highways
during the first quarter of the year, as
compared to 705 for the same time per-
iod in 1973.
So more people can practice safe
driving, Charles Redd, a Denton resi-
dent, will teach an eight-hour defen-
sive driving course next week in con-
junction with National Defensive Driv-
ing Week, which began Sunday.
The course will be taught in Room
90 of Denton Senior High School, 1007
Fulton Street, from 7 to 9 p.m. April 16,
18, 23 and 25.
The $8 tuition for the course will
be collected from 6:30 to 7 p.m. prior
to the first class meeting April 16.
Completion of the course will qualify
drivers insured by most insurance com-
panies to have a 10 per cent reduction
in premiums for a period of three years.
More information may be obtained
by calling Redd at 382-1591.
She said she went home with the songs
in her head and began to use them in her
work. Dr. Sylvia Chaskin of the lan-
guage faculty discovered this and asked
for a small exhibition for the depart-
Ms. Sale said that a good deal of at-
tention was given to the colors used in
these paintings. “All Spanish borders on
the melodramatic and the sentimental,”
she explained. “It is fun to try and skirt
that with color."
Social commentary is also explored in
the collection. This is especially true
of a picture of a nun selling chocolates.
Ms. Sale enjoys working with puns,
and she said this particular piece is a
play on Spanish advertising.
Many of the paintings use letters
and fragments of words in them, and
Ms. Sale explained that there were sev-
eral reasons for this. A primary reason
is that “we are surrounded by words,
bombarded by them” and then, of
course, words are interesting to work
with and to look at, she said. Another
is her close association with poetry and
words in general. Ms. Sale is the wife
of Dr. Richard Sale, a poet on the En-
“Complexity, contradiction and am-
biguity” are three words Ms. Sale uses
in reference to her application of words
and letters in her work. “You deny a
word its function when you put it in a
painting," she explained. This can have
all kinds of implications including hum-
or. "Sometimes it’s fun just to jumble
up the letters," she said.
The letters are also used to play with
space. “They can define the edge of a
form or make up the form themselves."
The possibilities are endless, and when
combined with Spanish culture via
poems and songs the product becomes
even more intriguing.
